Acapulco Nights 10/10/14, Jeff Wayne's "War of the Worlds"

To get ready for Halloween, we bring you Jeff Wayne's "War of the Worlds". The musical adaptation of H.G. Wells' novel, came out in 1978, and was a big seller in the UK. Featured a star studded cast, and with arrangement by Jeff Wayne. Though it gets pretty schlocky at times, it's great example of synthesizer based prog rock, which went on to influence cosmic disco and Italo. Hope everyone has an awesome Halloween!
